This week’s movie choice is No Greater Love
Jeff and Heather are high school sweethearts and appear to have the ideal marriage. That is, until Heather slips into severe postpartum depression after the birth of their son. Suddenly, the life both Jeff and Heather knew has changed. Heather disappears, not to be seen again for 10 years. In the meantime, Jeff is raising their son and has found someone new with whom to share his life.
What happens when Heather re-enters the picture? Numerous questions arise: Will Jeff revert to his wedding vows of “till death do you part” or will he hold on to the hurt that he faced when Heather chose to leave? And what about their son? Will Jeff choose to proceed with the new life he has created or once again live the memory of a life past? And where does God fit into the plan?
I saw the previews for this movie before it was released and knew I would be adding it to my “must see movie list.” I wasn’t disappointed. This movie shows the importance God places on marriage. Other topics, such as faith, love, forgiveness, trust, and healing also play prominent roles. There is nothing objectionable in this movie; however, due to the subject matter, I wouldn’t recommend it to those younger than 12.
I would highly recommend this movie and have included it in my alltime favorite movies. It will leave your heart encouraged!
